In this special bonus episode I’m sharing another case study of a business owner who’s business has exploded! Today’s guest took her offline business online, and in the process, grew it 522%.

Dr Shannon Irvine is the founder of Mosaic Vision, a non profit that serves AIDS orphans in rural Uganda Africa. The mission of Mosaic Vision is to restore the lives of AIDS orphans. Dr Irvine is also a Phd in Psychology with an emphasis in neuro-psychology and neuro-plasticity. She uses her credentials to help the orphans in Uganda thrive. Dr Irvine is also a business mentor who loves helping others master their thoughts, habits, emotions, and schedules to live the life and business that honors God and their priorities.

Not only has her rapid growth surprised her, but it also completely changed her view of what a business can be, as you’ll hear all about in this episode.

If you enjoyed this episode and it inspired you in some way, I’d love to hear about it and know your biggest takeaway. Take a screenshot of you listening on your device, post it to your Instagram Stories and tag me, @jameswedmore!

Intuition is a topic I’ve talked about often on this podcast, because it’s something that you need to use in order to make effective decisions as an entrepreneur. Not only will you make better decisions by using your intuition, but you will be more confident in the decisions you make - and do it with less stress. Today’s guest is intuitive healer and psychic business coach Emily Aarons, and she’s going to go deeper in explaining just why intuition is so critical, and how you can really develop and flex this muscle.

 Emily supports her clients on their healing journey by clearing and releasing blocks from their energy systems, as well as from all lifetimes, using the Akashic records so they can step fully into their power as entrepreneurs. Formally trained in Polarity Therapy, Emily has been clearing energy for nearly two decades. She also holds a Bachelor of Science in Communications and Business Management from Salem State University. Combining her abilities as a healer with her love of business allows her to mentor and teach others how to run powerfully profitable businesses. Emily’s body of work includes guided meditations, a flourishing Facebook group called Life Made Simple, self-paced online intuition and business classes, in-person live events, 1:1 sessions, and an exclusive 12-month mentorship.
